Southwestern Cuisine A Blend of Tex-Mex, Cali-Mex and Mexican Food Cultures

Southwestern Cuisine & Food Culture


The Southwestern region of America comprises of New Mexico, Texas and Southern California. This region has a history of rustic cuisine inspired by Native Tribes, Cowboys and modern Mexicans.

A combination of Texas and Mexican cuisine is known as Tex-Mex cuisine while a combination of Californian and Mexican Cuisine is called Cali-Mex Cuisine.

The Southwestern Cuisine is inspired by various cultures which have added new variety to the foods. Aztec and Mayan Civilizations were the ethnic residents with their fruits, vegetables and occasional meats. However, Rice and flour was brought in the 1400’s by the Spanish invaders resulting in changing the way breads were originally made from corn. The Spanish brought wit them oregano, sugar, cinnamon, black pepper and cilantro. The European Invaders, especially the French also introduces new food varieties to the already rich Southwestern Cuisines. Garlic and onions found in today’s cuisines are believed to be brought by the European invaders.
